I was already midway writing the upstream module, and completed it. It was a great exercise anyway for looking into guts of nginx upstream state machine. :) I would look at the lua ones next. I am sure the learning obtained here and the eventual approach I had to take would be useful to build lua-resty-sphinx2.
Looking forward to be part of the great openresty bundle! :)
